At 7.55pm on June 3, With me, his son, mum and dad, sister and brother in law Brent passed away. It was a beautiful good-bye. We had been with him constantly from Saturday, me sleeping in his room overnight listening to his dying breath. I thought I would be scared I worried that I wouldn't be able to support him to the end, I surprised myself.
My love for him allowed me to hold him, kiss him and help him leave. Now even though I lived it and I watched it, I still can't believe that he isn't coming back. It's almost 2 weeks. I smile and laugh one minute, the next I'm crying my eyes out. Those last weeks were tough and I wished I could have made it Eire for him but I guess dying has to hard?
I will cherish the cerebral intimacy we had. I will miss his friendship, intellect, wit and total commitment to me and ours. I will remember him everyday forever. And, one day in the future, I will stop crying.......
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
